Hey, my dear pupils! 🙂
Pronouns are words which replace nouns.
They make longer conversation or narration smoother by allowing the speaker to not have to repeat the names of people, places and things. For example, in referring to a group of friends, one would use “they” instead of listing all their names (Randy, Laura, Matt and Emily) over and over again.
We can also divide them into two groups: subject and object pronouns. Subject pronouns replace subjects (the thing that does the verb) while pronouns replace objects (the thing that the verb is done to).
Let’s watch the video below to understand it better!
